A delightful romcom about a woman who decides to revisit each of her seven exes, convinced that one of them is “the one who got away.”
Seven Exes. Seven Missed Chances. Who was the one who got away?
Esther is nearing thirty, with a great job, and a flat she shares with her two best friends, Bibi and Louise. But her life is missing that special someone. Tired of being single and sick of bad date after bad date, she thinks she’s found the answer to her romance problem in an old women's magazine.
According to the magazine’s dating column, there are seven archetypes a woman will date before finding Mr. Right. It all seems silly at first, until Esther realizes she has exactly seven exes that match the profiles: The First Love; The Work Mistake; The Overlap; The Friend with Benefits; The Missed Chance; The Bastard; and The Serious One. Is it so hard to believe that perhaps one of them is "the one"?
Deciding she must have left her true love in the reject pile, Esther contacts each of her old boyfriends. But finding her soulmate isn’t as simple as she hoped it would be. Madness, mayhem, laughs, and tears ensure as she valiantly works her way through her past love life and faces up to her previous mistakes. It’s an odyssey of the heart that will teach her lots about herself . . . and just maybe lead her to the man of her dreams.
